Geosynthetics in Hydraulic Projects

Hydraulic structures comprise the geosynthetics market segment with arguably the largest growth opportunities. The term “hydraulic structures” includes dams and canals. Hydraulic structures interact with water, which can be one of the more destructive forces in the environment. Geosynthetics are often used to limit the interaction between the structure and water. Geosynthetics can increase the stability of the hydraulic structures.
